That's one of the beauty's of doing work in rural commuinities isn't it?
Relaxed requirements... the local inspector didn't have a clue about what
was being built so he really just focused on structural integrity, firestops
etc... the state code was loosely interpreted and that requirement called
for max 3" openings for railings.
We don't need no stinkin' handrails!
Ever see the hilarious 1950's french comedy called "Mon Oncle" (My Uncle)
with the french comic actor Jacques Tati? Tati used to do very graphic
(almost mime) movies with very little dialogue. In this one, he plays the
uncle who lives in traditional Paris who comes to visit his sister and
nephew in the "new and moderne" section of Paris. They live in a house that
is all ultra contemporary shiny and white with concrete floors, automatic
appliances and electric "everything"... The whole movie is nothing but
buzzing sounds, clicking and echoed sounds... the walking on the floors -
clink clink clink - is riotous.
I wouldn't mind seeing it. I've seen some very good French comedies...
La Grande Bouffe comes to mind. I recall another one where a pilot
with an old open-air plane, takes a passenger, and does a loop-de-loop
that has the passenger falling out.
